Ruan Chun Xian chapter 1 . 6/2/2013
You have no idea how much I appreciate this story. As much as I loved the movie when I was 10, the older I get, the more frustrated I become with it (and the sequel which the less said, the better). This is precisely what would realistically happen though.

That's a little sad. But still lovely.

Thank you for sharing. It was wonderful to read and contemplate.

This is sort of sad. It's not a Disney-style ending but is probably more realistic.
peculiarities chapter 1 . 11/25/2012
This story just pulls you in. It makes so much more sense than most of the happy endings, because sometimes this is just the way life goes. I loved it, which suprised me a little. Well done.

This story has a nice rhythm to it, very well written. Strangely sad an haunting, too.
PrincessLazyPants chapter 1 . 11/4/2012
Very well written!
Athalanta chapter 1 . 9/9/2012
Oh, well, good riddance. If she is a widow, she is the head of the household?
(Yes, I know I am a horrible person)
rthstewart chapter 1 . 9/4/2012
This is so poignant and seems very, very real. More than glory, there is duty and Mulan will obey it rather let the ghosts of their ancestors wander - which is so chilling. She carries the weight not only of her family but of the dead.

I share your opinion of the sequel, and I like where you seem to be going with this. And a hint of randomness: the word count for this chapter is 444, which in chinese culture is unlucky because the character for 4 sounds like death.
bluexxxcarnation chapter 1 . 7/29/2012
This was really well written and I liked it very much, but it's so sad because despite saving China, Mulan still conforms into the woman people wanted her to be.
C.G chapter 1 . 7/23/2012
It is sad, but good.
Nasu Hasami chapter 1 . 7/7/2012
You have lovely rhythm. I find the style reminiscent of Lisa See's writing. It's a really beautiful little piece.

For some reason this story is inexplicably appealing...

I really liked this chapter.
